Cheesy Crabmeat Casserole Recipe With Vegetables Is Addictive & So Easy to Make

Here’s a crab recipe that started as a copycat recipe for that cheesy dish I often see on a Chinese buffet. I decided I wanted to add a little more nutrition than just the (imitation) crab meat and all the cheese, so I added the vegetables: mushrooms, potatoes, spinach and celery.

I made this easy casserole recipe more like a meal than an appetizer! Serve it for dinner with a fresh garden salad.

Cuisine: Chinese / American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 to 55 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • 1 cup shredded fiesta blend cheese or your favorite cheese (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) imitation crab, shredded
  • 3/4 pound tiny potatoes, pre-steamed for 5 minutes to cut down oven time
  • 5 medium mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bag fresh spinach (about 4 to 5 ounces)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a large bowl, blend cream cheese, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and half of shredded cheese. Stir in milk.
  2. Add crab meat and all the vegetables. Stir to combine. Cover with remaining shredded cheese.
  3. Dump the mixture into a casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove foil, check potatoes with a fork to make sure they have softened and bake, uncovered, for another 10 minutes or until bubbly.

Note: When I made this I didn’t precook the potatoes and it took much longer in the oven to get them soft.

This looks really good!! Can't wait to try it. Melissa Vickers
Would using canned new potatoes work?
Melissa Vickers
Probably. Give it a try! They wouldn't take as long in the oven.

Um, this looks AMAZING, Melissa Vickers . My mouth is watering! #yum
I thought this was really delicious. I steamed the potato and it did cook up just right. I added 1 lb of the crab meat and substituted the spinach for broccoli florets. SO YUM!
